Library with models for building energy and control systems
Annex60 library is a free library
that provides more than 300 classes (models, functions, etc.) for the development of
Modelica libraries for building and community energy and control systems.
The library is compatible with models from the Modelica Standard Library,
in particular with models from
The library is developed through the international collaborative project IEA EBC Annex 60, New Generation Computational Tools for Building and Community Energy Systems, that is carried out within the implementation agreement Energy in Buildings and Communities (EBC), of the International Energy Agency.
The intent of the library is that it will be extended by implementations of Modelica libraries that are targeted to end-users. Major goals are
Hence, this library is typically not used directly by end-users,
but rather by developers of libraries that will be distributed to end-users.
Libraries that are using the
Annex60 library as their core, or
that are working on using the
Annex60 as their core, include, in
AixLiblibrary from RWTH Aachen, Germany, available at https://github.com/RWTH-EBC/AixLib
Buildingslibrary from Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, Berkeley, CA, available at http://simulationresearch.lbl.gov/modelica/.
BuildingSystemslibrary from Universität der Künste Berlin, Germany, available at http://www.modelica-buildingsystems.de/.
IDEASlibrary from KU Leuven, Belgium, available at https://github.com/open-ideas/IDEAS.
The library also contains more than 300 example and validation models. For Dymola, each of these example and validation models contains a script that simulates it and plots certain variables of interest.
The web page for this library is https://github.com/iea-annex60/modelica-annex60. Contributions to further advance the library are welcomed. Contributions may not only be in the form of model development, but also through model use, model testing and validation, requirements definition or providing feedback regarding the model applicability to solve specific problems. In 2017, the development of the Annex 60 library will be continued under the IBPSA Project 1 at https://github.com/ibpsa/modelica.
